China has confirmed it has a warship-mounted electromagnetic rail gun, and that sea tests are underway. It's a new weapon that abandons conventional gunpowder for intense — but carefully controlled — magnetic fields. These can accelerate projectiles to enormous speeds — making them fly further and ...

The Durham delegation of the North Carolina General Assembly held a town hall meeting Thursday night, but only drew about a dozen people. It was held on a rainy night in East Durham with about a week's notice. N.C. Sen. Floyd McKissick Jr. (D-District 20) wasn't happy about it. He arrived at the Holton ... China's Navy
Developed initially for an Electromagnetic Rail Gun next-generation weapon, a Hyper Velocity Projectile, or HVP, is now being examined for a range of additional applications. The HVP can travel at speeds up to 2,000 meters per second when fired from a Rail Gun, a speed which is about three times that of ... China's Navy
It is undoubtedly the best way to move mountains, exterminate sparrows, build backyard smelters and indulge in dreams of tokamak fusion reactors or ship-borne rail guns.

Rail guns are cannons that can accelerate shells using large amounts of electromagnetic force. They have a range of 200km, about 10 times that of conventional cannons. They deliver significantly more destructive and speedier projectiles. Chinese authorities remain mum about rail gun-equipped ships, ... Navy
No fuel required. Launch using electromagnetic rail gun powered by a big PV installation. Could launch from the moon also, lower gravity, no atmosphere, so you'd lose less of each rock to heat ablation but would probably need a manned moon base. If we can't do it on the moon might as well forget ...
And, at least during rail gun death matches, the stats and abilities didn't have too much bearing on the high-risk, high-reward, lighting-quick shooting and dodging.

The results weren't pretty, but they were certainly less horrific than napalm.

Reports indicate that the Pentagon wants a weapon system able to fire at a rate of 10 rounds per minute, however, the rail gun is currently only able to fire 4.8 rounds per minute.
